“ Electronic books are ideal for people who value the information contained in them, or who have vision problems, or who like to read on the subway, or who do not want other people to see how they are amusing themselves, or who have storage and clutter issues, but they are useless for people who are engaged in an intense, lifelong love affair with books.

[close] Dear Goodreads readers. It is a pleasure to meet you and to read your comments - well, mostly, except when I want to cry into my pillows.

[close] This group is about recommending and discussing books about books and reading. They might be memoirs by writers who are reflecting on their career. They might be works of literary criticism. They might be novels with characters who are writers, or which are set in publishing worlds. Perhaps they are good "how to" books on writing. But it is for books that reflect on writing, literature and the book world in some way.
